Barrot Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2005

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

Dark and muscular, this is layered with lots of plum, blackberry and black cherry fruit backed by mocha, game, plum sauce and graphite notes. The long, fleshy finish lets the fruit and minerality sing. The best in a long time from this producer. Best from 2008 through 2022. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

The complex, earth, plum, herb, cherry, and currant-scented 1998 Châteauneuf du Pape is a complete, rich, layered wine. It reveals considerable structure at present (it was just bottled), with moderate levels of tannin, a spicy, animal-like characteristic, and flavors of black cherry, kirsch liqueur, and incense. It has the potential to improve for 5-6 years, and drink well for 12-14 years.
